It leads to result in negative effect on air quality in high urban area especially due to uncontrolled free radical formation released to air. Consequently this condition might cause skin diseases that are contacts to those radicals mainly the human skin it causes. To overcome this problem there is one way to keep the skin in health to manufacture a soap ingredient as a radical scavenger it’s a formulation that provides a new function. A plant proteolytic enzyme papain which is found naturally in papaya (Carica papaya) it is a cysteine protease enzyme is manufactured from the latex of raw papaya fruits. They are known as polypeptides which are made of amino acids and have a functional ability to break down organic molecules it is a proteolytic enzyme. In this research work to enhance the human skin health it can be used as soap, a developed active ingredient which is made of crude papain enzyme is a solid soap formulation with antioxidant origin from fresh papaya. This study tested the benefits by the addition of crude papain enzymes that will be safe for the skin; they aim to produce a solid soap formula who meets the standard of SNI 1996. The result shows that formula IV that meets the standard SNI 1996, it is a formula soap and other formulas indicated by the value of IC50 is 13,657 ppm which have highest antioxidant activity. For negative control (with enzyme) has value of percentage dirt removal higher when compared soap with positive control (without enzymes), it is measured about 32% by mass substrate after washed, and measured absorbance of wash water substrate is 19%.
